A Christian couple is facing massive backlash after going viral for their restrictive rules for marital conduct, according to the New York Post.

What are the details?

Christian social media user Bailey McPherson made headlines Saturday after sharing a video on TikTok titled "Rules my husband and I have for our marriage that make people ANGRY."

Bailey, who is married to her husband Zac McPherson, revealed that there is a zero-tolerance policy for pornography and that neither she nor her husband are permitted to be alone with members of the opposite sex.

Other rules, according to the outlet, include "No friends with the opposite sex," "No texting the opposite sex without the other knowing," "No lusting after others (following scandalous pages)," and "Always put each other first (even over parents)."

At the time of this reporting, Bailey's video has been viewed more than 2.5 million times, and commenters flocked to her page in droves to leave nasty comments.

The comments were reportedly so fierce that Bailey was forced to disable comments beneath the video.

According to the report, commenters flooded Bailey's page with comments like, "Tell me you don't trust your partner without telling me you don't trust your partner" and branded the couple as "insecure" and "insane."

Another commenter thundered, "LMAO, the fact you think these rules will keep a person faithful shows how delusional you are. A person will do what they want to do."

What else?

In a later video, Bailey defended the couple on their stance on not having any friends of the opposite sex, saying, "I personally feel like as a married woman, I have no need for companionship with another man that I cannot get with my husband. My husband also has no need for a companionship with another woman that he cannot get from his wife."

Bailey also attacked pornography and said that the absence of the unhealthy outlet would create a "stronger intimacy in partnerships," as well as improved body image and emotional health.

Her second post — which also has disabled comments — has been viewed more than 969,000 times at the time of this reporting.
